May VEF Participant Wins a Kindle Fire

Posted May 21, 2013    Qui Cao

As you all know, every month we host our Vulnerability Expert Forum (VEF) webinar. This is a time where our experts share valuable insight regarding new vulnerabilities that are discovered and the actions that need to be taken as a result. It’s a quick way to get up to speed on current potential risks to your organization and a way to explore the impact that high-risk vulnerabilities and exploits have on network environments and infrastructures. BeyondTrust is committed to helping security administrators reduce the workload they face by making this information easily accessible and by clearly presenting all required information to our audience.

If you haven’t attended a VEF before, I encourage you to sign up and join our next one in June. Not only will you receive a complete analysis of recently announced critical vulnerabilities from Microsoft and other software vendors but you could potentially win a Kindle product from us!

Our May winner, Mark Hopkins, was awarded with a new Amazon Kindle Fire for participating in our discussion earlier this month. Here’s a little bit more about Mark:

Mark Hopkins is an Information Security Operations lead with 13 years of Information Technology experience, with the last 5 years specifically focused on Information Security and vulnerability management. The constant changing landscape of Information Security trends suites his desire to continuously learn, grow new skills and make Information Security concepts digestible to larger non-technical audiences.

“I love working in the Information Security field, because I’m a people’s person. This may sound counter intuitive that Information Security is somehow  people oriented with how much technology is involved in this line of work, but the truth of the matter is that people are critical to the process of securing the very resources attackers are seeking. After all who else will avoid clicking the spam link, apply the necessary security updates, or fully fund security best practices? People. Like an old co-worker once said `In our partnership for securing the Enterprise, the part you play is very important.”

Again, congrats to Mark and thank you to all for being continued supporters of BeyondTrust and security for all. Don’t forget to join us at our next VEF and you too could possibly take home a new Kindle product! Sign up here.
